Senators helping senators is all the rage, it seems. Elizabeth Warren, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts, has thrown her support behind Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. While it might be “too early” for Warren to decide if she’ll join Sanders’ campaign, she is in his favor.
“Bernie’s out talking about the issues that the American people want to hear about,” she stated in an interview with the Boston Herald earlier this week. Warren had no comment on former Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her campaign.
Warren is primarily focused on the “issues” that Sanders is bringing to the fore with his campaign. She thinks they are important and what “matters to a lot of people.” That seems logical. Shouldn’t the potential President of the United States tackle issues that matter to his constituents? We think so.
Warren supplemented that she “love[s] what Bernie is talking about.”
Finally, Warren criticized the Republican candidates. She is fed up with the fact that the GOP is using the Affordable Care Act “as a punching bag.” Warren, however, isn’t at all afraid to fight. She told her audience in Worcester, Massachusetts, if the Republicans “want to fight,” she and the Democratic party will be ready.
